3rd District Court of Appeals Coming to College of Law
The Ohio 3rd District Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in three cases at Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law on March 30 at 10 a.m. in the Moot Court Room.
The oral arguments will be held before a three-judge panel consisting of Judges Richard M. Rogers, Vernon L. Preston and John R. Willamowski. The court’s fourth judge is Stephen R. Shaw. Rogers, Shaw and Willamowski are all Ohio Northern University law alumni.
The court will hear one criminal case and two civil cases while in Ada. The first case, In Re: NF (a minor) (Auglaize County), is an appeal involving a gross sexual imposition conviction.
The two civil cases, Miller v. Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. et al. (Allen County) and Frick v. Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. et al. (Allen County), both deal with appeals involving age discrimination claims.
At the conclusion of the cases, the appellate judges will take questions from the audience.
The Appellate Court’s special session at the College of Law is part of an educational outreach program to give students, educators and the public an opportunity to enhance their understanding of the appellate process. The Appellate Court, based in Lima, Ohio, is comprised of 17 counties and travels among them for special court sessions.
